Amanda graduated with a Masters of Science in Physiotherapy from McMaster University in 2016. Since graduating, she has worked with a variety of patients in different healthcare settings including emergency department, orthopedic and general surgery, intensive care unit, and palliative care. Of these experiences, she feels the most passionate about the role of physiotherapy in preventing disease and managing chronic pain.
Her focus is on providing patient-centered care, which includes a balance of education, exercise, hands-on therapy, acupuncture, and self-management programs. Her goal as a Physiotherapist is to help patients be able to do activities that are meaningful to them, and to maintain their best level of function. She has additional training in pelvic health and integrates this knowledge in caring for patients living with incontinence, prolapse, and pelvic pain across the lifespan.
She teaches in the Physiotherapy program at McMaster University as an assistant clinical professor (adjunct) and as lecturer (status only) in the Physical Therapy program at the University of Toronto. She has a research interest in the effects of long COVID and is a current presenter in the Long COVID education rounds.

She had the privilege of working as a Physiotherapist at the Canada Summer Games in 2017, and continues to enjoy helping young athletes reach their goals at the clinic.
